You're more than welcome.. and it's great to hear you still have a local starter/alternator shop you can visit for a rebuild on a boneyard piece. Sounds like a perfect plan!

I've seen a couple different failure modes on these minis - they will slow-crank for a ridiculously long time and then start cranking normal speed (who knows why), or begin a semi-slow crank that is the warning that it will soon quit cranking altogether. These normally sound "fast" when operating properly so if the one you get doesn't sound like it's spinning significantly faster (the starter motor itself, not the engine cranking speed) than the old direct-drive starter, go ahead and get the rebuild.
